Not to be missed, this museum show a bank in the 18th century as the 1st China bank (1823), growing to 57 branches nationwide. The museum has a lot of rooms, including offices, living quarters and kitchen, as well as documents and cheques from the old days.

Nice stop of you have one hour and are interested by the way the ancient Chinese bankers kept their values. It is worth to see it once. The explanations in English and French are sometimes misleading so it is better with a guide.

This was the first privately owned bank in China. There are numerous examples of how the bank operated and what the offices were like and how they catered for their customers
